Port Aransas Deep Sea Fishing Report
The fishing is excellent…. when the wind hasn’t kept the boats at the dock. Yes, every year we go through the same pattern, it just seems that this year it has lasted a couple weeks longer than normal. During the periods when the boats are getting offshore Port Aransas, they are catching every species possible. Red Snapper season is in full swing with easy limits for all of the charters. After the snapper are in the box, a lot of the charters have been opting to troll for some mahi-mahi (dolphin, dorado) and wahoo with luck. Some of the charters are releasing sailfish and blue and white marlin on the longer , 12 hour trips. If 12 hours seems to long, we do have a couple of boats that will go snapper, shark and kingfishing for 6 hours starting around $700. With the light winds and pretty water the next few months, this may be a perfect trip for the family. Be done fishing by lunchtime and have time for the beach, a bay fishing trip or even a round of golf.
